I hunted a remote stretch in Northeast Texas and found a nice variety of items. The vert is from a good size mosasaur. The sawfish teeth always seem to be broken. I found some small shark teeth and a piece of cretaceous turtle shell. The bottles are from the 1930's and 1940's. I really like the Groves Tasteless Chill Tonic bottle. I posted a little info on the old bottles. We saw at least twenty wild hogs in one pack crossing the creek and one giant solo wild boar.

Based on the ads above, I think I'd like to try the shampoo but I'll pass on the tonic - why would we want to make our kids "as fat as pigs"???  What a weird ad... :wacko:

 

Nice finds, Jarrod!

Great finds! I started liking artifacts before fossils, so I always appreciate them!:thumbsu:

Nice finds! Thank you for including the broken bottle info, always interesting to see things from the not-so-distant human past too.

During the 1930's fat kids equaled healthy kids. Hard times back then.

Nice finds. Looks like the top most shark tooth is a Serratolamna. Are those rare in Texas?

Makes me think of the Bob Wills song Roly Poly "...daddy's little fatty"

The ad, and therefore the bottle I assume, are from the 1890s. Same situation back then too?

 

I'm surprised how crude the glass bottles were even in the 1940s-50s. Not much better than the 1800s. I found a small medicine bottle while collecting fossils at a site near the old hospital where I was born (now an extended care unit), and I figured it was early 1900s if not late 1800s, but was told it was from around the mid-1900s. I should get a pic of it. It is a stopper-type top, not a screw cap, and the hole is off-center.

Nice finds as always! Are you sure that vert is not plesiosaur? From one angle it seemed like it. What formation is this creek just wondering.

Thanks. It's mosasaur. It's just the photo. The creek is Ozan
